I don't know the proper place to post this, so I might as well try here.

I have a deck of Superior brand cards by the Expert Playing Card Company.

Half of the cards are regular red backs with the card values printed on the backs.

The other deck half are red/blue double backers with apparently random card values printed on the red side.

Any help in identifying the deck so I can find the instructions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Grrr.. I know the trick you mean, but can't remember the title. Im sure it was Magicworld that put it out (although I might be wrong on that) and sadly it disappeared from the market. Something like the World's Worst Marked Deck or some play on that. I used to sell them, but I've forgotten the title Smile

It's called "Marked" I believe. Does it also have a Double faced JOKER?
You show a blue backed deck, which then becomes a red back with the cards marked.

No double back joker.

Just 26 regular red backers (with card values on back without the suit) and 26 red/blue double backers with card values on the red side.

I probably bought this through Penguin and have the instructions in my account, but I can't locate them in the more than 300 items there.

And believe me, I've been looking!

If I can't find them, I'm throwing it out, and I don't really want to because the deck was sitting in one of my "decent trick" boxes.

And thanks, dyoung and tomdeg, but those names don't ring a bell with me.

That's it, Afal!

Thanks!

And I was wrong about there being no Jokers, tomdeg.

There is one regular Joker, and one double backer marked Joker.

Now if I could only find the instructions- they're not a download.

I’ve got this as well but also cannot remember how to use it. If you find out Jack could you let me know please? It’s a great effect.
